The Creeks most classic squeeze.
P1. Splitter thin fingers up to hands and even some chimney. Gear belay at the base of a slot. (5.11)
P2. Fists up a slot and through a bulge to a gear belay at a stance. (5.9)
P3. Offwidth in a corner to an optional belay/ bail anchor, and then tunnel and squeeze up through the back of the roof. (5.11+/.12-) At the top of the squeeze a fist traverse left regains the final chimney of "Lightning Bolt Crack". Very size dependent.
Starts 25' left of "Lightning Bolt Crack"
Tcu's through #4 big-bro.

I have no clue how many times Liquid Sky has been climbed or how frequently, but to add to this thread and help out those gunning for it (or dissuade them)...Two friends linked up Liquid Sky (the leader onsighted it) and then Lightning Bolt Cracks in a day. See pages 49-50: issuu.com/coloradocollegealpinejournal/docs/ccaj2011. Pretty impressive. I imagine most would agree.

Super psyched to have gone out the roof on Pitch 3 of Liquid Sky today rather than through the squeeze chimney. I started in the squeeze and horizontally sidewinded out the roof proper, did a quick inversion at the constriction toward the lip and then pivoted right side up to get into the vertical past the lip. It was scary. Most exposed inversion of my life and really hard to place gear.
